So Sorry for Your Loss


I found out last week that a friend of mine lost her dad right before Christmas.  I feel so bad that I didn't no sooner, but wanted to quickly get a sympathy card in the mail to her.  Her dad was in his mid 80s and had been declining for a few years, but no matter the passage of time it is never easy to lose a loved one.  

Playing along with the fabulous sketch over at CAS(e) this Sketch.

  5. These are lovely colours for a sympathy card. I think sometimes we make them in too neutral colours at a time when we need a little lightness. This is a great design. Congrats on getting HM at Muse. I just saw I got HM at CASolgy which was a plus!

  19. Lynn, this is beautiful! I bet your timing was actually quite perfect. It is about this time that the notes and extra visits stop and the pain settles in a bit more...at least in my experience. I bet this card did wonders to help your friend feel loved and remembered and helped ease the pain of losing her father just a bit more.
